If you are familiar with Red Bull, you are probably familiar with the name Felix Baumgartner. Baumgartner is the man who fell from the stratosphere after jumping from a capsule sponsored by the energy drink company. That jump resulted in the longest free fall in history.

Other than not being afraid of heights, and parachuting like a boss, Baumgartner is also apparently an accomplished helicopter pilot. The Red Bull daredevil recently teamed up with drift driver Jakub Przygoński for some helicopter/GT86 tandem drifting.

As the drift car smokily tears around the track it looks like Baumgartner will land on the roof of the 1,000 horsepower car. Check out the three-minute clip and see what you think. It’s pretty awesome.
